50% Merino, 50% Tussah Silk
Eos is our most popular laceweight base. I had been dyeing it for quite some time and kept wondering why people liked it so much. It is not as soft as Chasca, and does not take the dye up like Marici, and Ling. It also does not have the lustre of Marici and Ling.
Then, I decided to knit with it. OH! Now I know why people order it so much! Eos feels great in your hands as you knit, and if you drop a stitch it will not ravel all the way back to the beginning like those slippery silk yarns. The finished fabric is wonderfully soft, and Eos shawls are great to wear, because they do not feel quite so delicate that you are afraid of catching a strand of yarn on something.
